Highlights

Seeing 2000 years of London's history within a 90 minute walk around the old City of London is a breathtaking experience.

On this tour we not only show you some of our more famous sites, but also many of the secret locations which showcase London's medieval, roman and modern history.

Your expert guide will navigate you from remains of the roman and medieval wall, through to the 900 year old fortress of the Tower of London and onto a 17th century plague cemetery and to the hidden remains of the original stone London Bridge.

As we move towards the end of the tour, prepare to be amazed by the juxtaposition of ancient and modern in the heart of the financial district. High rise buildings jostle for position with old churches, pubs and market places.

Certainly a tour which requires an expert guide in order to navigate you through the alleyways and courtyards, and to reveal the secret and profound history around each corner.

What You'll Get

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Leadenhall Market, Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 1LR England

We will enter the gorgeous Leadenhall Market, adorned with dragons, shields of St George, and the site of a poultry market for centuries. It feels so magical that it was used in the first Harry Potter movie!

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: St Olave's Church, 8 Hart Street, London EC3R 7NB England

This was the famous diarist Samuel Pepys' parish church, and during the outbreak of the Great Fire of London of 1666 he lived opposite. It is also the resting place of over 300 victims of the Bubonic Plague and has a rather macabre gateway which Charles Dickens described as 'the Gates of Ghastly Grim' !

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: 60 London Wall, London EC2M 5TQ England

We will see one of the most impressive remains of Roman London - a section of the wall which was built nearly two thousand years ago and encircled our city.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Tower of London, St Katharine's & Wapping Tower Hill, London EC3N 4AB England

We will have a great view of this 900 year old fortress and hear about its incredible and rather surprising history!

Stop At: The Monument to the Great Fire of London, Monument St., London EC3R 8AH England

Standing where the Great Fire of London of 1666 started, we will be in line with the 202ft high Monument created by Sir Christopher Wren as a lasting memorial.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), 30 St. Mary Axe, London EC3A 8EP England

Standing in the midst of a forest of iconic skyscrapers in the financial district is an awe inspiring moment. At the heart of this we'll see Norman Foster's world famous Gherkin and the equally well known Lloyds building. And dwarfed by it all is a 16th century church! The most incredible juxtaposition of old and new in the whole of London.
